movies

I'm starting to get excited about movies. You know, the big blockbuster ones everyone gets excited about. I've also got a list a mile long on skwerms of movies I want to see. Hanging out with Amy's dad helps some--he lives for movies, and has an extensive collection; and watches them, constantly. Constantly, ish.

Anyway, the point of this.

Just saw the Batman Begins trailer. Oh Em Eff Gee. It's really "making sense". Less "spandex superhero", more "dark knight graphic novel".

Chronicles of Narnia (Episode 1--I wonder if they hope to do all of the books...) also looks like it's going to be wonderful, if not necessarily fulfilling. I intend to (re?) read the books, as I'm not sure if I ever read them, or just had them read to me pre-consciousness.

Mirrormask, of course, is a must see. Must Eff You See Kay Eye Enn Gee See.

Revenge of the Sith--read a bunch of spoilers and have actually really started looking forward to two scenes in particular. Dark. Apparently ties in well with the mood of The New Hope.

HHGTG--stupid, not stupid; not going to see it in the theater, sadly, but I know I will see it eventually. I hope I don't dislike it as much as some.

Hmm. The next Harry Potter--I missed reading one of the books, don't know how much I care, ... But the movie looks pretty. I definitely like the mood they've got going.

Crap. I know there's a number of movies I've seen mentioned recently (within the last six months) that aren't on this list, that I really wanted to see (that aren't out yet, so hopefully I'll hear about them again)...
